The general concept and initial approach to syncope patients has been mentioned in the general sections. This special sections have been described the characteristics, diagnosis, and treatment with patient education for the each syncope. It has been described in order of reflex syncope, orthostatic hypotension, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), cardiac syncope, and unexplained syncope.
Several clinical issues will have been dealt with in special issues. Neurological assessment is added when the patients were diagnosed with psychogenic pseudosyncope (PPS). Although many childhood syncope caused by reflex syncope, they are also presented as syncope caused by arrhythmic events in patients with congenital heart disease. In the elderly patients, syncope is because of not only a single cause of syncope but a combination of various conditions. In case of a syncope patient visiting the emergency department, a standardized systematic approach will be required to determine whether hospitalize the patient according to the risk of recurrence and the needs for the syncope management unit. We also mention recommendations on the limits of driving, exercising and social life style that are relevant to syncope in all patients. In this guideline, we reviewed the Korean published literatures and European/American guidelines on syncope.
